I haven't looked at the replays of last night as I was quite drained at the end. Quite an intense race I had in Race 1. I had a battle with Simone which I'm pretty sure lasted the entire race. I was just holding Simone off for the first half of the race, we pitted around the middle of the race. I pitted a lap after Simone but he jumped me in the pit stop, maybe you had a flying outlap? Maybe my in lap was a bit slow? I can't remember.
After the pit stops, our two way battle turned into a 3way with ab which was good fun. We were all very close to each other's lap times but in different areas. Simone seemed to have more downforce or maybe just bigger balls as he was flying through them couple of fast right turns around the middle of the lap but I was faster down the straight.
I came undone when I wasn't thinking straight and openned DRS down the straight on one of the laps earlier in the race and copped a penalty, so any extra time I could get was needed. I don't know if you guys were struggling with tyres but you both seemed a little bit easier to keep up with and I managed to make moves on both of you down the start/finish straight. You still both beat me because of the penalty but I think if I didn't get them moves done on you guys then Wally would of beaten me on time too and that's just not on
I was hoping that Race 2 would of scored me some good points as I was starting 3rd and was hoping that I would be able to get a gap early to most of the field and just bring it home in one piece. This wasn't to be as from what Wally's analyst of the replay states, is that Jeremy got loose and has taken me out before the first chicane. I had to let the field go and drove around with a red front wing, it was quite sketchy drivng that so I pitted and got the nose replaced. I pushed on and tried to make some spots back, I was making good time around midrace but had a couple cars get tangled in front of me and just didn't have enough time to pull up. I hit them front on and received another red front wing and I think it was Wally that got caught out in this and rear ended me. So I pitted again, this time with both my front and rear wing's red.
There must of been some costly mistakes throughout the race as I still came home in 10th? after pitting twice.
I've been asked by the guys over at arse to mention this enduro series to you guys. They are looking to fill some more spots.
They are trying to keep the field spread out in all the cars so they put a limit on how many people can select a car. But it has also been stated in the thread that if you really want a certain car that's already been selected too many times, then just make a post in the thread and they will look into getting you in your preferred car.

Last night was the first time I had used Oculus Rift in AC, actually just got it delivered last Friday and had used it in iracing on the weekend for the 24hr lemans. It was quite an experience to have VR running last night in the close battles that I was involved in. Really exciting stuff!Cool! You mind me asking what GPU you are using and how it goes with Oculus? I have a 980 and I fear it would not be enough...
I don't really know, I have a 1080 but these guys seem to say you'll be ok so I'd say go with their opinion

Last night was quite an enjoyable round. Lots of passing with and without DRS. I had a good battle with ab in race 1 and also had a good battle with Freezer in race 1 as well. I was fortunate to have made a gap to Freezer after the pitstop otherwise that could of been a race long battle.
Race 2 I had pole position but that didn't last long at all, kcender was on a mission and flew passed me on kemmel straight on lap 1. I was being swamped at the start of this race, faster guys just trying to make an early move. Phil actually overtook me a couple times and they were very brave but also very good overtakes. Unfortunely grat and I touched but it didn't really effect my race at all, his mistake cost him a lot though. I had a good long battle with Mael in the second race, that was really good fun! You got away from me in the end though, good racing mate.
I don't mind about that incident with you Wally, just like to call you out on things because you know, your the boss and all
I didn't get much practice for this round, I had to make quite a few changes to the shared team setup that had gone around. I don't know how you drive that Bacc!

Disappointing night for me. Still battled on throughout both races anyway but both races were decided at T1.
Race 1: I looked at the replay on this one because I wasn't exactly sure what happened behind me. I was rear ended which broke my rear wing, but the guy behind me was also rear-ended and looking at the positioning of most cars following, it was a very tight bunch of cars trying to navigate that rubbish corner together. I tried to keep going but that rear wing didn't help me and the following lap I spun at T1, so I pitted and continued on to see how many spots I could get back.
Race 2: That big crash happened ahead of me, I had plenty of time to choose where I wanted to go. I went to the right side of the track but there was one car that was still spinning across the track when I was going through the wreckage and I got a tap on my left side which broke my front left wheel and I ended up in the fence. I did the same as Phil and just pitted at this point, waited for the countdown in the pits and then went out to just do some laps by myself.
I hope next week goes better, cya's then!
Thank you all, appreciate the warm welcome!

Do I have to pick a skin or can I be assigned the same skin as my teammate?That would be a derivation of mine. Any requests?
No, it's cool how it is. I just haven't looked at it in depth, wasn't sure if you had placed your name on it or something.

Yes please, thanks Wally

I really enjoyed the 98T, deciding on when to use boost throughout a race would be good fun but the exos had a lot closer racing. The first couple of laps in the exos were very close and from what I seen most people handled that without problems. The same can't be said for the 98T, that seemed to spread out quite quickly.
I don't really know where I want to place my vote, I've changed it a few times already but I just can't decide.... I want the 98T because it's exciting and could be death at every corner but the exos did show a lot of exciting close racing so I just don't know.

when tyre blankets were off I had to up pressures by 1 all round and raise aero to 4.
haha it wouldn't of helped much. I had one crash before my pitstop. The car felt ok, maybe loose a bit but as a whole it felt ok so I wasn't going to repair it. After my pitstop I crashed about 5 times or something, it was a pretty ordinary performance really, I'm surprised the car still felt ok after all the crashes. My wheel was still straight at the end and my window wasn't cracked. I bounced off some walls pretty hard at times too. The last few crashes all happened in about 2 laps and thats where you were able to pass. My tyres were absolutely ruined and I was sliding everywhere by the end. My tyres ranged from 30%-40% left. I don't think I've ever raced in AC with tyres that have been so worn down.
I was fiddling with my fuel levels just before the race and forgot to fill it back up so I started the race with only 80L out of the 120L tank. When I pitted I filled it, I could of actually gone one lap longer before needing to fill but I thought I had enough to finish the race, with that extra lap I ended up needing to pit again on the last lap to make it to the end.
It was a good event, thanks Wally! Next time I'll make sure I do more practice. I wasn't really ready for taking on nords in the Audi this time.
